Page 217 of the Evo handbook specifies 5W-40 you can even double check that as we have the handbooks in the general section. Seems pretty clear cut which oil you need to me.

    and so I called them back.........

    Bizare will best describe the conversation. So in the end the guy said that he just called fiat and they said that I should use 5w/40 and not what he advised me only ten minutes earlier.

    He did however ask me if mine was an SS version which I told him they currently don't exist. He said they did, so I aked him how do I get the upgrade to which he said that they currently supply it. After further questioning he said it's available but they haven't agreed a price....but they are currently taking orders. WTF! How can somthing be available if there is no price? Abarth are starting to look like a joke company!

    Is the official Abarth branded 5w/40 currently available as they said it's not released just yet?

    Will be picking up the regular Selenia 5w/40 today :)

    The PDF is an official release so I think it's pretty safe to say it's available.

    That was only issued recently though, this is the oil I was told was going into production when I told my dealer they were putting the wrong stuff in :)

    Is it a coincidence this notification has come out a few weeks after my whinge, the car has been out for months after all.

    Yes it's coincidence, I don't think Petronas have an account on the forum

    After 5000 the car needs some Oil for the first time....

    I notice Castrol Edge 5W-40 is an ACEA C3 oil and readily available everywhere. "Appears" to meet FIAT spec for Abarth mult air. Tesco were selling it in store 30% off a few weeks ago (other Forums were talking about it). Didn't buy because car had used zero oil from new and thought I'd get to service without top up  ::)

    5W-40 is the correct grade. Buy the Selenia multiair oil, its easy to get hold of on the net.
    The service light will show on your dash at 9k and you will need an oil change then anyway.
    Buy two 2 litre tins of Selenia 5w-40 multiair oil, from the net. Use some for the oil change and you will have half litre or so for top top up. Just get a price for labour for doing the oil change.
